The official launch of the latest thriller by New Zealand author Kirsten McKenzie - The Forger and the Thief.
Set in Florence, Italy, The Forger and the Thief is set amongst the devastating floods of November 1966, where the River Arno ravaged Florence's artworks, architecture and citizens. The launch of The Forger and the Thief coincides with the 54th anniversary of the floods.
Kirsten's previous thrillers - Painted and Doctor Perry, were both bestsellers in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, enjoying a long run in the horror charts. Kirsten is a full time author based in Auckland.

Wellington’s favourite indie writers and ideas festival returns this November with a programme packed with Aoetearoa’s top writers, poets, storytellers and journalists.
